"Great daypack, but not particularly useful as an expansion to a larger pack"
I bought this daypack solely because it has the capability of attaching to my larger Osprey backpacking pack (the Arial 55). It does indeed attach fairly securely, but not if both bags are full. It is a major strain to get the Daylite onto the Arial 55 when the larger pack is packed-- the Daylite has to be nearly empty. This is unfortunate because it means this daypack doesn't really expand the storage capacity of my larger backpack.Otherwise, the Daylite is great. I like the size (smallish medium, just right to hold a day's essentials) and it feels really well made. It also has hip and sternum straps but I don't typically use them. Osprey's Almighty Guarantee (will replace for any reason, any time) is always a plus. Definitely a great multipurpose backpack, especially in the black color since it will go with everything. I would recommend this daypack!
Their packs are so functional and sleek looking. The best of both worlds. I have the Aether 70 for multi-day and this bad boy for single day. A 3L resevoir fits nice and snug in an outside compartment for it which allows you worry free hiking about it leaking inside. All in all fantastic!
awesome backpack just what i needed. fits tight for more aggressive hiking/ trail running. holds more than everything i need. the only extra thing id have liked to see is a soft pouch for my phone but i usually have that in my pocket anyway so im thrilled with my new backpack
This pack is what you expect from Osprey quality.Very durable and easy to attach to my Aries pack. Love the fact that I can easily extended the liter size of regular pack and when camp is set up detach my daylite pack add my water bladder and away we go for a hike.It is a great size, easy to adjust to fit me perfect.
I carried this bag as my every day bag for 10 days in Europe and was very pleased with it. It's so light, even when fully packed, that I often forgot it was there. Having said that, just be warned that it isn't a huge pack, so you can't carry everything you own in it. But, I carried a jacket, camera, tablet, and other various and sundry things with no problems. The straps could be padded slightly more, but I was never uncomfortable carrying the pack. And, for the price and the Osprey guarantee, you just can't beat it.
I'm a little obsessed and in love with Osprey packs and this one is no exception. GREAT for day hikes! My osprey 3L water bladder fits great and the straps (which are super breathable and comfortable) don't dig into my shoulders carrying 3L of water, rain gear, first aid pack, spare clothes & food/snacks! I couldn't believe everything fit!
